As Terrorism Dominates, Can Trump Be Stopped?

Editor’s Note:  If the Establishment is AGAINST SOMETHING you should probably support it.  Just Say’en…

Remember the conventional wisdom that Donald Trump was no more than a faddish celebrity candidate who would soon fade and drop out? Seems like another century, doesn’t it?

Ever since he announced, the billionaire businessman has been at the top of the polls and, with barely a ripple, has remained there. Right now he appears to be lapping the field and only three of his opponents — Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz — are even making it into double-digits on any of the polls. And Carson seems to be the one who is fading.

In the respected Reuters-IPSOS rolling poll from November 20, Trump is at 38.8%, Carson 14.7%, Rubio 10.3%, Cruz 7.1% with long ago supposed shoo-in frontrunner Jeb Bush 5.5%, trailing even “Wouldn’t Vote” (6.3%) by .8%.

No wonder, according to this weekend’s WSJ, the GOP “mainstream” is revving up to “hit Trump.” Panic has set in. From the WSJ: A super PAC supporting John Kasich (3.0% in the IPSOS poll) is apparently planning to blow $2.5 million on an anti-Trump campaign (talk about throwing good money after bad — how about giving it to cancer research, boys and girls?), Jeb is doubling down on his attacks, the Club for Growth is gearing up further assaults, and a “guerrilla campaign” is starting up by a new outfit called Trump Card LLC.

This last group, spearheaded by Liz Mair, at least has some originality to it. They’re producing parodies dramatizing Trump’s old not-so-conservative views (like supporting single-payer healthcare). But I would be willing to wager they will all amount to no more than the P-word: piffle. The Donald’s not going anywhere, and none of these initiatives seem remotely capable of dislodging him.

Meanwhile, Comrade Trotsky — as the events of the last few days have underscored, if we were too stupid not to know it — we’re at war. And in war, you don’t look to, say, Bernie Sanders to lead you. You look to George S. Patton. You’re not interested in nuance a la John Kerry, pathological dishonesty a la Hillary Clinton, or a president whose sympathy might really be for the other side. You want a real commander in chief, a fearless leader — you want…. Donald? Well, yes, Donald. He may have to do. He won’t be afraid to do what’s necessary.

Recognizing that, everyone, Republican and Democrat, is piling on. They jumped to vilify a Trump answer to a question from a sneaky NBC reporter about whether Donald thought we should keep a database of our Muslim population. Donald may or may not have said yes, and he already retracted it if he did, but that didn’t stop Jeb from characterizing his comment as “abhorrent.” It’s…

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
